Hemp Shirt...by Client Request

Recently I was discussing a client's wardrobe needs. He told me about a favorite shirt that he has had for many years that is now nearly in shreds. He asked if I would design a similar style, this time from hemp. This shirt is the result...
...its slightly rumpled "distressed" look is entirely intentional.



I suggested buttons on the chest pockets,
but the client opted for open pockets.


Made from a cotton/hemp blend from Hemp Traders, the fabric was  distressed by washing it several times in hot water with a splash of vinegar.

After the shirt was sewn,

it was distressed further by "sanding" random areas
.

I love the style of this shirt, rustic and classy. The fabric looks so comfortable and cosy to keep you warm in the office during the winter season.

Pam this shirt is beautiful. The style is classy and fabric looks so comfy. If the client had been real clever he would have ordered on with plain pockets and one with buttons on the pockets. Maybe he still will. Think the buttons would look sharp!
